    So much for the US in the name US OPEN … have a 6th major and call it the INTERNATIONAL … rotate the venue from country to country …

    Frank, it’s Qualifying tournaments for the US Open. International Qualifying tournaments for the mens British Open have been happening for about the last 5 years or more. A small number of spots are allocated to each International qualifying site.

    They have them in the US for the mmens Britsih Open. We have in Australia a qualifying tournament for 2 spots in the British Open. It saves on costs for those who would have to travel to the Host Country to qualifyand reduces numbers qualifying at participating sites in the Host Country. Once you try and qualify internationally and miss out, you cannot qualify again for that year.

    oz, tell me you aren’t equating the qualifying for mens British Open with a local qualifier in Korea for the US Open..really…the Koreans have all the money, let them use some of it

    • Ozz says:

      No, I’m not equating the 2 tournaments. But it would appear the USGA is taking on board the system that they use for the British Open. You may find that the USGA might do the same for the mens US Open in the future.
